Gray is anything but boring, especially when you spice it up with a few accessories. Make your sweater trendy, dressy or professional by pairing it with a variety of different textures and colors. A gray sweater can be a versatile choice for any occasion by switching up your jewelry, handbag and shoes.
Girls' Night Out
You're about to get drinks with the girls, and the only thing that's clean is your gray sweater -- no problem. Streamline a chunky, 3/4-length sweater with a thick black belt. This is a great opportunity to play with textures, so go for a snakeskin or leather belt if you have it. Pair the sweater with your little black dress, a pair of silver flats and a gray handbag, and you're good to go. Who knew a gray sweater could look this sexy, sleek and sophisticated?
School and Work
Transform your dark gray sweater into a sleek and professional wardrobe choice when you're off to school or work. Add a pop of color to a gray cardigan sweater with a bright red or yellow scarf. Pair the sweater with a black pencil skirt or black dress pants and black pumps. Top off your look with a few chunky bracelets that complement your scarf.
When you sip mimosas with your friends on Sunday mornings, add fun touches to liven up your gray sweater. London-based fashion stylist Laura Waringer recommends raiding your grandmother's jewelry collection for vintage costume brooches and pins. Layer necklaces in a variety of colors and textures and leave the sweater slightly unbuttoned to draw attention to the neckline. Pair your look with a patterned vintage handbag, skinny jeans and strappy sandals to complete the look.
Even if you're just vegging out watching DVDs at your friend's house, your cozy gray sweater is a fashionable choice. Pair your gray sweater with a brown leather hobo bag, brown ballet flats and a knit hat. Wear your favorite stud earrings, a silver necklace and silver stacking rings to keep it casual, and snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and a big bowl of popcorn.
